"theew york times" also today saying theepublicans are e jh vote.ma a b playor would the angst of jewish voter on the question of iran put the jewish vote into play? >> if you look at the gallop poll of jewish voters, president ama is a%th question of which candidate jewish voters are likely to vote for in the election were to the t and that's ahead of what they were in the election in 2008. that's because, thomas, one thing is that on domesc issues, whether it's making inmeinedioea care, research, head start, civil work, standing up for people who have no voice. sh a very important season for jus an a time in which we focus on the importance to repairing d,t mneynd the republicans are wrong on every issue that matters to jus domestically and we are making sure that jewish voters understand that president obama has a stellar record on israel. an, in fact, i would just push back a little bit and say that p.m. netanyahu and president obama have a
of people are saying doing that at the u.n. was not part of the prime minister. megyn: here at home, israeli anxiety over their the nuclear program is becoming an election issue. many americans watching nervously as our closest ally faces the possibility of a hostile enemy and their doomsday weapon. the big question is did prime minister netanyahu effect the election with that speech yesterday. alan colmes as host of his show and chris plante is host of his show as well. do you think that benjamin netanyahu is trying to interfere with the election? >> it certainly seems like it, although i thought he moderated his comment yesterday. i very much appreciate the position of the president, as is everyone in the country. he also made it clear that the redline, if there was to be one, which he then drew, would be well into 2013 pass the presidential election. seemed to me that he kind of backed off his u.n. speech yesterday. on the other hand, he is talking not just to president obama, but as i understand it today, mitt romney, which is highly unusual, and he has made it very clear that mitt romne
was reluctant to have one meeting in a u.n. schedule where normally he'll have 15, because of the nearness of the campaign. >> this is the whole question of whether or not president obama should be meeting right now with the leaders who are gathered here on the world stage. he is not having any meetings at all. was this to avoid having to meet with prime minister netanyahu or president morsi of egypt? >> welt -- >> equally difficult in a political year. >> better to do nothing than something in this case. i think it had to do a little bit with morsi, didn't want to be seen -- the campaign didn't want him to be seen as meeting with the lus mim brotherhood president of egypt and not the prime minister of israel. remember he had an hour long phone conversation with netanyahu last week and they did cover ground. it's probably easier at this point not to see anyone, rather than just one prime minister or president and get everybody mad at him. >> a lot of politics in this. would you explain to me why if the president wanted to say that his schedule was too busy to meet with these world leaders,

this afternoon. his comments come one day after iran's president addressed the same leaders at the u.n. and today the israeli prime minister warned that iran could enter the final stages of enriching uranium for a potential bomb by next summer. >> ladies and gentlemen the relevant question is noted when iran will get the bomb. relevant question at what stage can we no longer stop iran from getting the bomb? the red line must be drawn on iran's nuclear enrichment program because these enrichment facilities are the only nuclear installations that we can definitely see and credibly target. >> shep: israeli officials say they could soon strike iran's nuclear facilities with or without help from the united states. west has been using economic penalties to get them to abandon their program but so far, they haven't worked. >> there is an urgency that the israelis feel that the rest of the world doesn't. they are at arm's length from the iran regime that has a nuclear agenda. >> the israelis are feeling both the mentality and course of action that the u.s. has taken and west in general is naive. >> and s

spring. it's a very fluid dynamic. president obama gave a speech at the u.n. yesterday which i thought was interesting and pretty incoherent. said we're not going to determine the democratic outcomes of what's happening there and at the same time the syrian leader must step down and a nuclear weapon for iran is intolerable. i think both parties have a pretty good co-heirens about the u.s. power in that world and that's going to make things pretty dynamic for a long time. >> is it unclear? >> i think it's an important thing and i think it has been been too little of a debate. this is primarily a dough necessary tick policy of the elect. the majority is not thinking of these. they're primarily voting on domestic issues. you now have a country that's exhausted with two wars. he's made such a hash when it comes to his tour and going over to europe and the first 24 hours of the libyan debate was so mismanaged. the president has a record. what has been done to al qaeda, getting to the end. i think his standing is good even if his numbers slip out of this concern. >> we're just about out of t
look at prior presidents at this u.n. meeting, they didn't meet with any leaders either. >> well, i -- vin? >> governor rendell saying, president clinton is saying. on the other hand this is not just any moment. this is a moment of greatest foreign policy crisis in this administration. so for him to decide that the campaign is more important because he'd have to meet with too many people in new york doesn't fly with me. although a lot of good news for the president in the polls, we've established that, the foreign policy front is not one. "the wall street journal" poll shows he's seen a precip does drop in his handling of foreign policy and that could become an ish. >> >> one problem with that, and that is governor romney when asked what he would do differently, doesn't come up with a very cogent or believable answer. >> before i let you go, ed rendell, wanted to ask you about pennsylvania. here you've got the president up by 12 points in the latest polls. what's going on in the senate race where senator bob casey is only up by six points? >> well, i don't -- i can't answer that at
at the u.n. general assembly. let's discuss the political fallout with our senior political analyst ron bro brownstein. when he shows up and draws a red line and suggests by next summer as he said earlier, six or seven months it will be too late. this is the time. it's got to be done. that puts enormous pressure i assume on the president. >> this has been extraordinary watching this over the past few weeks as prime minister netanyahu in a series of speeches and now this u.n. appearance, i think this is trying to maximize the leverage possible forsi oba to align with himn ts idea to establish a red line to trigger militionryac the president so far is saying no. lling this week shows the country divided evenly ono would better hdle the challenge, romney or obama. but it's also true there's been notitehink in the american pubor ano war in the mideast. in that sense netanyahu has kind of an uphill argument to push. >> howortant iss iue out there for those undecided voters specifically the decid voters in those key battleound states that ll teine wlo gets 270 electora college votes, we're talkin

especially at places like the u.n., nothing of substance gets done. i actually prefer that our president is on the phone with prime minister netanyahu today. he was on the phone for an hour last week. he has been on the phone with other leaders from the middle east constantly throughout all of the chaos that is happening. that is much more important from a substantive standpoint than from any sort of perception standpoint of who he met or who he didn't meet, and we also saw the prime minister walk back his criticism. >> we got to leave it there. anna, maria, good to see you both. >> thanks so much. >> it would be great if he were meeting with the ladies of "the view" instead of meeting with netanyahu. >> he -- >> that's my personal preference. >> to meet with five powerful women. hey, you know, that may sway some votes. >> we have to take a quick break.

there are these targets of opportunity the u.n. to think carefully and deliberately about the way that you frame your policy, and paul ryan to raise the kind of idea who paul ryan is and what he believes but one reason a lot of the more impressed is that she is someone that is always very careful to say i support a safety net we want to modernize the safety net and make it more sustainable for the future of that message has gotten drawn-out in part because it doesn't resume for what you're from the activists and also what is friend because they haven't been able to successfully counter the training from the other side partly because it doesn't seem natural to them that if you have someone that can make the argument and a compelling way someone from a dance urban rivers electorate maybe we could see a very different result. >> you talk about republicans being backed into it but they're objecting to it because the nature of the republican primary electorate isn't just an accident so it's hard to see in the short run how you have the tragedy's to the republican party that is the force that is backing so
to build a bomb. according to the latest report by u.n. inspectors iran has about 200 pounds of 20% uranium, roughly two-thirds of what it would need to build one nuclear device. at the current rate of enrichment, iran would have 20% uranium for one bomb in about 10 months, or as netanyahu told the u.n., by next spring or summer. after that, it would take just a few months more to enrich uranium to the 90% bomb grade level. netanyahu said iran's nuclear program must be stopped before then. >> before iran gets to a point where it's a few months away or a few weeks away from amassing enough enriched uranium to make a nuclear weapon. >> reporter: but as defense secretary panetta told norah o'donnell of "cbs this morning" earlier this month, the u.s. has a different red line. >> when they make the decision to go ahead and build a nuclear weapon, that, for us, is a red line. >> reporter: u.s. intelligence does not believe iran has made that decision yet. but netanyahu said it is too dangerous to rely on intelligence to detect the decision made in secret. so he set his red line on something he ca
at their hearts. >> reporter: words that are sure to fuel tensions as talks continue inside the u.n. in washington, danielle lee, nbc news. >>> meanwhile, the iranian leader's airplane has been in our area all week. iran air 747 has been parked at joint base air drus during ahmadinejad's stay in new york. vip planes are limited to a two-hour drop-off in new york. so it is not unusual for heads of state to leave their planes at andrews, or the military bases especially when the u.n. meetings are under way. >>> a vigil for a family of four found dead in their herndon, virginia, home will begin in just over an hour. late this afternoon police identified the family. they believe 52-year-old albert peterson shot and killed his wife, kathy, and their two sons, matthew and christopher. they were all discovered at the home on point rider lane yesterday. the family was found after the parents didn't show up to work for two days. the tragedy has made it difficult for a lot of local families. jackie bensen will have a report with more on how parents can deal with that coming up in our next half hour. >>> a m
